2009 J.M. Boillot Montagny 1er Cru

Community Tasting Note


86 Points

Tuesday, April 10, 2012 - The nose is reserved, but nevertheless characterized by fresh lemon, toasted oak, brine, and dried mint. The palate is more full bodied than the nose implies, opening with ripe orchard fruits and morning dew. Lemon, subtle toasted oak, and brown butter arise as the wine progressing, culminating in a medium finish of sour lemon, dried green herbs, and smoke. Though this wine is medium to full bodied, adequate acidity lends a bit of freshness to its flavors. It improved over the course of the evening, so be sure to decant or open well in advance. R&M 86
